Crow Pose, Bakasana
This is a tutorial for crow pose, bakasana. It strengthens the wrist, forearms, abdomen and improves balance.
In Sanskriet Baka means crane and Asana means posture. The crane was thought to be the messenger from the gods and symbolize loyalty and communication. In a variety of traditions, they are thought to be the connect the gap between earth and the heavens. The effect of Bakasana is transcendence, or the experience beyond the normal physical level.
We must go beyond what we believe is our limitations and take off like a crane. Bakasana can bring up questions such as "What if I can't hold this posture?" or "What if I'm not strong enough?" but we must be open to take the chance. Bakasana requires us to transcend our limits and reach higher.
